Eli Goree’s breakout role was as Wells Jaha in the first three episodes of the CW’s hit sci-fi survival thriller “The 100.”
Wells is the son of Chancellor Thelonious Jaha (Isaiah Washington) and the best friend of Clarke (Eliza Taylor). He intentionally gets himself arrested to be part of the titular group of post-apocalyptic juvenile delinquents from a space station who get sent down to Earth’s surface to explore it for habitability almost 100 years after nuclear armageddon. He’s not a bad boy at all, though — he’s joining the crew in order to keep an eye on Clarke.
At the start of the series, he’s the group’s moral compass, doing his best to keep the delinquents on the straight and narrow and helping out with whatever tasks were needed. Unfortunately, he is killed in the third episode by a young girl named Charlotte (Izabela Vidovic) in an act of revenge, because she blames his father, the Chancellor, for the deaths of her parents.
Eli Goree wasn’t on “The 100” for very long, but he still managed to make a major impact as one of the show’s first important deaths.
